Roberts Grove Dive Centre
The on-site dive centre at Roberts Grove goes to both the inner and outer reef, each with its special features. The inner reef, or the lagoon, acts as a home for juvenile aquatic animals. Here divers will see most of the gorgonians as well as the Pederson cleaner shrimp, yellowline arrow, and giant hermit crab, and a wide variety of fish such as spotted drum, spotted eagle ray and southern stingray. The outer reef is home to some of the most spectacular walls, starting around 12 metres and dropping off to approximately 910 metres; common sightings include turtles, manta rays, moray eels and lobsters.
In April, May and June each year, the dive centre operate trips to Gladden Spit, a point just off the barrier reef where mutton and cuberra snapper gather to spawn around the full moon, attracting whale sharks from far afield.
